Łukasiewicz: Russians can exhaust their initiative
a former Russian diplomat about Putin’s future.
“Disappointment and disagreement”
will take place
“For 20 years of my career I saw various phrases of our foreign policy, but I was never ashamed of my country like February 24” – wrote BondaW.
As he told the journalists of the AP agency at the time, he does not intend to leave Geneva.
Now the former diplomat has told in an interview with “Newsweek”, which may happen to Vladimir Putin if he does not achieve his goals in Ukraine.
As Bondarew says, in the event of a failure, it is highly likely to change power.
-Putin can be replaced.
He is not a superhero.
There is no superpower.
He is an ordinary dictator – he said.
Bondalew added that in history “such dictators were replaced from time to time.”
“When they lost the wars and could not meet the needs of their supporters, they usually left,” he said.
He added that the loser war and the lack of a new offer on the part of Putin would cause “disappointment and disagreement.”
– They may think they don’t need Putin anymore.
When they say goodbye to illusions and find themselves in a new reality in which Putin cannot provide them with anything – except for fear and some kind of threats or repression of his people – it will change the situation – he said.

The prosecutor emphasized that the investigation he conducts in this case covers the period from 2014, i.e. from the beginning of Russian aggression to Ukraine.
Karim Ahmad Khan also wrote that the basis of his application/' target='_blank'>application was the Roman statute regulating the work of MTK, which prohibits the resettlement of the population from the occupied areas to the occupying state.
He reminded that children are also protected by the Geneva Convention.
The prosecutor confirmed the deportation of at least hundreds of children from Ukrainian orphanages and nursing homes.
Many of them were to be put into adoption, which was used to adopt regulations facilitating giving them Russian citizenship.
